About This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing

Commissioned by Imaginate

Age 7-12 years

What happens when your world is turned upside down and you have to find your own way? When triplet sisters are abandoned in a forest by their father, three resolutions are made - one walks one way to find purpose, another the opposite way to find adventure and the third stays right where she is. Over many years having grown forests, baked cakes, explored oceans, fought Vikings and built homes… the sisters, now women, meet back in the forest where it all started. A contemporary fairytale about determination and friendship that will encourage us to follow our dreams.

Saturday 1 June at 2pm is a BSL interpreted performance by Amy Cheskin


Prolific playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer’s play has been staged in many countries and languages and has been adapted into a book.

Co-produced by Imaginate and Stellar Quines, and funded through the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund.
